Photography & Printmaking

Printmaking is basically where my artistic talents went commercial (Graphic Design). Though I never really knew it; I’ve been a printmaker all my life. Nevertheless, I was formally trained by one of my favorite arts Instructors, Myron Hanson. Classical methods of press making such as lithographic & limestone block pressing and various other additive and subtractive applications of reproduction. Study of these time tested principals have shed light on the qualities & principals that translate into making a great final product as a graphic designer. Though my most current commissions have been heavily computer and web based, some of my recent personal creative explorations have been interdisciplinary projects combining large format printing, wood fabrication, screen printing & relief fabrication using repeat patterns on digitally warped grids.

Project Description: These assemblages are meant to be less serious in nature and provide the viewer with an fun, attractive and engaging work of art that has charm, feeling and loads of personality.
